Exhibition Stand Design Prices

Compare Exhibition Stand Design Prices TodayCompare Prices From Local Exhibition Stand Designers

Exhibition stand design prices do vary considerably.  This is for a number of reasons, but mostly due to the stand designers themselves.  

With over 300 exhibition stand designers in the UK to choose from, selecting the ‘right’ agency is essential.  

All exhibition stand designers are different, some have been around for 20+ years, some have just started trading.  Some work internationally and some only do very basic pop up display stands.

Whether you are spending £300 on a pop up display stand, or £75,000 on a custom built stand, choosing the right stand designer is important.

Choose the wrong one, and your stand will not stand out, and your money is wasted.

An exhibition is a one time event, you need to get it right on the day, and this all starts in the planning before hand.

Why Do Exhibition Stand Design Prices Vary?

Lets break this down, to see what is involved with exhibition stand design prices

Size Of Your Exhibition Stand

The size or type of exhibition stand you choose will influence the price.  If you go with a basic exhibition stand then the cost will be low.  A large one and it will be high.  This is quite obvious really.  

Something mid-range would be a modular display stand, popular and still with a ‘wow factor’.

A basic pop up stand with graphics would cost around £200 or thereabouts.

A modular display stand would cost a couple of thousand pounds.

A custom built stand could cost anything from £20,000 up to around £100,000 depending on what you are looking for.


The kind of accessories you have on your stand will also affect the price.  

  • Do you want to have a flat screen TV demonstrating your products/services?  
  • Do you want to have a bar in the centre of your stand?  
  • Do you want strobe lighting or music?
  • What about backlighting or light boxes

These are all things that affect the costs.  The more elaborate you want your stand to be, the more the price will go up.

If you are attending multiple events over the course of a few years, then certainly investing into your stand is wise.  If you are just trying things out, dipping your toe in the water so to speak, then start small and with success then you level up.

Exhibition Stand Designer

All exhibition stand designers are privately owned.  They set their fees based on their overheads and profit margins.  It is wise to shop around and compare quotes.  

As mentioned, some stand designers have been around for many years.  This does not make them the go-to, just means that they have been trading longer.  Equally choosing the top result on Google is not the way forwards either.  Just because they are at the top of the search results does not make them the best.

To get a variety of exhibition stand design prices to compare.  It is not about getting the cheapest price, but finding the right stand designer for your project.

Graphics To Kill

The most important thing about your exhibition stand is your graphics, they have to kill.

Whether your use original pictures from a professional photographer or stock graphics from an online store, they have to be striking.  As we all know, a picture speaks a thousand words, and since your exhibition stand is all about the visual, quality is important.

Most stand designers can supply graphics, but all agencies are different and therefore quality will vary.

Set Up And Dress Down

Remember that producing an exhibition stand for you is not where it starts and ends.

It is a service, they will set up your stand at the event, and take it down at the end of the event.  This could well involve very early starts as well as late evenings.  Depending on traffic there could well be delays in getting back to base.

Storage of your stand is also included with most stand designers, keeping your stand safe and sound until it is next needed.

Choosing The Right Agency

As mentioned, choosing the ‘right’ designer is important.  You want your stand to produce you results.  To do the leg work for you.  

Do you have an international exhibition to attend or a local one?

There are many larger exhibition stand designers that are used to handling large international events, or even multiple events at the same time.

There are many smaller stand designers that handle events at the NEC & Excel that can assist with smaller to medium sized events.  It really depends on what you are looking for to negate the stand designer to choose.

We always advise choosing someone local, so you can visit them.  Also if they have done design work for companies in your market sector would add benefits.

Whether you are exhibiting at the NEC, the O2 or London Excel, exhibition stand design prices need to be as low as possible.
